XXVI.—No. 16 PITFIELD STREET.
General description and date of structure.
Condition of repair.
In the Council's collection is:
These premises consist of two storeys and attic over a shop. They
contain an interesting deal staircase of the late 17th century similar in
character to that in No. 37 (Plate 65). There is also a small cast-iron hob
grate to the back room on the second floor.
This part of Pitfield Street was built on not later than 1687, (fn. 1) and this
house, though altered externally, is, no doubt, substantially identical with
the original premises.
(fn. 2) Detail of staircase (measured drawing).
